Medical emergencies can happen almost anywhere, that is why it is important to be prepared if someone suddenly goes into cardiac arrest. About 10,000 sudden cardiac arrests occur while victims are at work, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) data. An Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is an at-home cardiac shock device that sends electricity back to the heart if it has stopped beating. With a three year medical prescription in NJ and NY, AEDs are a smart decision to have one readily available in any public setting, such as a school or office building.

Proper AED Use
Defibrillators are an important life-saving tool for public places. When you order your AED it’s important to know how to properly use and maintain it. When your AED arrives it’s a good idea to register it with the manufacturer. This way you will receive safety tips, recalls, and updates. You may also enroll your employees in an AED class offered by the American Red Cross to learn the proper use and practice scenarios.
When to use an AED?
It’s important to know when it’s appropriate to use an AED. If you notice someone is suddenly going into cardiac arrest, which is a disruption in the heart’s electrical activity, you can take the sticky pads on the AED and place them on the person’s chest. The AED automatically reads the rhythm and sends an electrical shock to correct it. At this time is it wise to have emergency services already on their way to further assist the patient and continue proper medical care. After the electrical shock, CPR may be performed to keep proper blood flow to the heart. Survival changes can increase if both are performed together.
